X-ray Detector Development at Berkeley Lab

Berkeley Lab has been building microelectronic-enabled detectors for more than 20 years, with particular interests in silicon strips, pixels and Charge-Coupled Devices (CCDs). We have developed thick, fully-depleted CCDs, together with a suite of custom integrated circuits, to make 200 Megapixel/s detectors. A next version aims at 10,000 Megapixels/s, and a higher-speed soft X-ray detector is also currently being prototyped.
These developments, together with the corresponding computing and data challenges, will be discussed.
